Both Lost and Desperate Housewives–who have dominated the Emmys for the past two years–were both shut out of all major awards. Not one stupid whore from Housewives got nominated.

Oh, boy, I love October. Lair of the Libra and sanctioned costumery. This year I will masquerade myself by wearing a gray turtleneck, braids, and no mascara, which immediately turns me into Andrew Wyeth’s Helga.
